ing something new to the Bowlful of Blues.
Her original music and exceptional voice have earned her a growing reputation and following in the area.
Born and raised in Ojai, much of Hendrix’s youth was spent on tour with her highly re- garded back-up singer mom, Sharon “Muffy” Hendrix.
Listening to world-class singers as a young girl, soaking up the sounds of Tom Jones, Natalie Cole and other vocal legends, had a profound effect upon her, instilling a love of music. Then, when she heard the recordings of Joni Mitchell, Donny Hathaway, Laura Nyro and Judy Gar- land, she knew what she wanted to do.
Hendrix attended Happy Valley High School in Ojai where she began writing and performing her own songs.
She attended Columbia College in Chicago
and the University of Nevada in Las Vegas, her music ever a driving force.
Her dream became realized when her mother and producer Dan Voss took her in the studio to record an album. “Carry Me Away” was a her debut.
Her latest EP, “Farewell to Emerald City,” was released June 24.
Annieville Blues
Annieville Blues started playing piano in 1965 at the age of 5.
She discovered jazz and blues while growing up in Los Angeles through her friends living nearby. These friends were the children of the famous performers, jazz drummer Louie Bellson and his wife, singer/actress Pearl Bailey.
By 1996, after settling in Seattle, Blues had start- ed her own blues jam show featuring her piano students and other student musicians, giving them the opportunity to play with a live band. In 2003, she began the Beginning Blues Piano Class at EMP (Experience Music Project) in Seat- tle.
Along the way, Blues and her piano have head- lined festivals and shared the stage with per- formers including Pinetop Perkins, Henry But- ler, Cephas & Wiggins, Hubert Sumlin, Maria Muldaur, Tracy Nelson and many others.
Richard Kaller
Richard Kaller is a local singer/songwriter, tell- ing stories drawn from his life with a dash of the experiences of those around him mixed in. His songs cover a variety of styles ranging from blues and light jazz to country and rock, in spite of having grown up on a steady diet of surf music and psychedelic rock.
The driving rhythms will get your feet tapping; the acerbic wit will bring a smile to your face. Kaller shares his slightly off-center view of the world through ballads, love songs and some- times even simple social commentary.
